Fabulous Fabric

Here it is...my first Moda fat-quarter bundle! I've seen them at shops and on blogs, and Friday I bought my very first one with my Christmas money (thanks, Mom)! It's so gorgeous I just want to look at it...but I want to start my Merry-Go-Round quilt--so I'm going to have to untie the ribbon soon!
Not only is this my first fat-quarter bundle, but it is also from a brand new line by Lila Tueller that isn't yet available--the shop owners picked this up at market last fall!
Along with my little "splurge," I did some great bargain-shopping on fabric as well.

I picked up a great piece of fabric for my Christmas cottage quilt at 35% off, two yards of "1974" at 50% off, four yards of Darlene Zimmerman prints at 50% off, and 5 yards of Kona cotton at 30% off.
So now I have no excuses--I have a list of projects and the fabric to get started!

Your Merry Go Round will look so fabulous in Lila's fabric.
Where did you find it? And I love the Christmas fabric with the circles, too. Looks like you had a fun shopping day!

You had some fun shopping. I have never bought one of those fat quarter bundles either because I have not picked a quilt pattern to do using them. Maybe one day. Have fun going through all of them. Love your "Deals" too.

Hi Sherri,
Love the fabric. Lila's fabric is going to be a big hit in stores and that Christmas tree with the circles is really cute...
I think that is all it takes for us quilters and sewers to feel good is to buy fabric or patterns.
Keep Stitchen'

Hey Sherri - a little tidbit on Lila. Kevin and I actually know Lila Tueller, who used to be Lila Rector before she married Hal. She is Hartman Rector Jr.'s daughter, the emeritus general authority who was Kevin's mission president in San Diego back in the 70's. Cool, huh? (Actually, she looks just like her dad!)

I know - it is wrong to covet. But I do love all this fabric.
